UAE residents will once again be able to enjoy visiting the Expo City Dubai, with more pavilions having opened from 1st October to visitors.

According to Gulf News, several pavilions have opened up to the public.

Here is a round-up of all the announcements that have been made that you need to know about.

When is Expo City Dubai reopening to the public?

From September 1, visitors were given access to two pavilions on the Expo 2020 site – Alif, The Mobility Pavilion, and Terra, The Sustainability Pavilion. They could also access the Garden in the Sky attraction, a rotating observation tower.

From October 1, the rest of the Expo 2020 Dubai site opened up for visitors.

How can you visit it?

While access to the site is free, including ‘Surreal’ the cascading waterfall, and the Al Wasl Plaza, you would need to buy tickets to access the pavilions and attractions. These include:

Children aged 12 and under and People of Determination can visit the attractions for free but are required to obtain their complimentary pass at one of Expo City Dubai’s ticketing booths, while everyone can enjoy daily access to the Surreal water feature and Al Wasl Plaza, which also opened on October 1.
